Author's Notes:

This idea was developed after I had written LUX FERET. I wanted to explore and give more backstory about how Michael becomes.. well what/who he becomes in this prequel! This also gave me the chance to incorporate more characters in the storyline as opposed to LUX FERET which is pretty much just Mike and Sara. It's pretty epic, fantastical stuff in a GoT kind of scale even though it was written waaaaay before the show's airing on HBO.

The saying goes that Lucifer,

Most beautiful angel of God,

The bearer of light and ruler of the western skies,

Had taken Lilith, the first design of wife for Adam, as his spouse.

And they had offspring.

Two demon sons and daughters, who wreaked havoc among the four pillars of the earth.

They plagued and made the lives of mankind wretched.  

And had offspring with each other.  

Those were Joziel and Caziel, who became husband and wife.

And established a kingdom of hell on earth, as God had established paradise in heaven.

And all of mankind prayed to God to rid them of these demons.

But God spoke: It is not yet time, the bud of redemption needs to bloom. But I shall provide.  

And he ordered the wise spirit to see to the end of the demons.

That they should be cured by their own medicine.

And if that would not help, they would be punished by their own rules.

And if they would yet not yield to God, they would be slaughtered at their own hand. 

For Joziel and Caziel had unconsciously taken two children into their house.

Two sons of divine nature: Luciel and Mithiel - the angelic sons of Gabriel the arch.

And Caziel, who had given birth to her daughters Gadriel and Nefariel,

Raised them as her own and let the siblings play together.

And thus the demon daughters and the angel sons grew up together.

But Satan’s seed was strong and seduced the cherubs.

Thus Luciel would live in sin with his sisters, while Mithiel would take his mother as a wife.

And they would both attract the wrath of Joziel. 

And all of the angels prayed to God to rid them of these demons.

But God spoke: It is not yet time, the bud of vengeance needs to bloom. But I shall provide. 

And he ordered the wise spirit to see to the end of the demons.

That they should be cured by their own medicine.

And if that would not help, they would be punished by their own rules.

And if they would yet not yield to God, they would be slaughtered at their own hand. 

For Joziel was killed at the hand of Gadriel and Caziel at the hand of Nefariel.

For the sisters desired their brothers for themselves.

And Satan’s seed was still strong and bedeviled the cherubs.

So Luciel cast his eye upon his brother Mithiel - fair as the sun.

And Mithiel, with wanton eyes, surrendered to temptation. 

And they lay with each other, and lay with their wives, and lay with anyone they desired. 

Those were grave days in heaven and the seraphim would mourn and the cherubim not sing.  

And Satan laughed and said to God: My demon girls have conquered Gabriel’s sons!

Their wings are stained with blood and shame, their souls are lewd and lecherous.

Now, who is the master of the skies and earth? 

And God said: See, I have sent two amongst the fallen.

two angels into the lair of demons, two of my doves between the snakes.

I still have faith in each of them, for there can be no shadow without light.

And the devil spoke to him and said: There can be no light without shadow, either.

Let me have one of them myself. Give me an heir to rule my hell and I will yield to you. 

Would God not part with either angel, Satan would reign for hundred aeons over earth.

So God complied, but said: If just one soul will sacrifice it all, truly feel love and pity,

For your heir, he shall be redeemed and become an angel once again.

And there shall be no more hell on earth or in the skies.

A tacit witness wrote down all the Adversary and the Spirit had agreed upon.

But all those words were carved in stone, which turned to sand and long forgotten.

While Satan’s heir ruled one and hundred thousand aeons long on earth.

Till but the oldest and most trusted keeeper still knew about this prophecy,

Passing on the secret knowledge to the last offspring of their line.  

Seraphina would treasure the truth in her white bosom, keep the words hidden in her soul, 

Where the serpent and the angel would fight over it, to once and for all,

Settle dispute between God and Lucifer.
